Self – Mind – NO Mind

Standard

no doubt, trying to understand the self , has so many different approaches…… so many ways …. and all are valid ……………. for, we are what we are , each one the divine Bindu on the vast circumference with an unlimited radius, and the Centre is ONE. The process of Pratyhara is the process of shortening the distance between you and God and is also termed as ‘ centering’.

In reality, there is neither a centre, nor a circumference . But, it helps the intellect to understand , and shed its obduracy or ignorance , necessarily a slow process .

What comes to mind is this : all saints and sages, Swamijee and Krishnamurthyjee included; their lives, their experiences, their words, only illustrate the Truth of the Ultimate Dissolution of the Mind. No Mind. And, the way to it .

This happens in a Flash. Happens when it happens . Is not subject to the Law of Cause and Effect( Doing) , and yet, alights as Grace not without much Doing ! Only after much Doing !

Each of us enjoys the journey even on the spiritual Path through one’s own Mind or Swabhava. Some of us may choose to walk the shortest Path between our place on the Circumference and the Centre; while others may enjoy many fragrances by moving slightly away from the radius every now and then, and coming back to it again and again.

But the ultimate experience is No Mind.

Here are some thoughts on No Mind :
………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

THOUGHTS ON NO-THOUGHT

What is no-thought? Silence?

Before the thought arose, there was silence; when the thought was no more, there was silence. How is it that I never became aware of this Silence?

Could there be awareness of Thought, if there were no silence to support it? In the background?

Does the Silence ever disappear? ………And Thought?

What is a Thought? Words? A string of words?

Where does word come from? Rise from? ……….. From Silence? When the word is no more, where does it go? Disappear into?……..Silence?

When the word is no more, is it really no more? Could it have its entity even when it is no more?…… As silence?

That, which is born from silence, is sustained by silence, dies into silence; can it be other than silence?

Is Silence a word? A thought? Or, no- word? No-thought? Just `being’?

And, now comes the rub!
Why should you be reading these thoughts on No-thought?
The knowers of silence say,
“When silence is known, all is known. All you could desire is within your grasp. Silence is the intelligence, from which all wisdom flowers. It is the fulfilment of life; nay, all evolution.”

But
As we read these words, our minds do not accept their truth,
And, therefore, we continue Our game ,according to our concepts and conditionings,
The game of herculian efforts, and what we feel are `achievements’, `successes’,
Till one day, it dawns on us, totally tired and fagged out , that all we ever valued
Did not have the power
To give us what we were always seeking; and what we were seeking was only
A moment’s repose;
Total, and absolute repose right Now.

And
It is right that it should be so; for all this is the play of Universal Consciousness, Which is
What You are.
